A Cowboy for Christmas was engaging and the characters were interesting. There was some room for betterment, especially regarding Brent’s confession. I felt that it fell flat and was not plotted and written in a way that made me understand the big deal.
Also, the incident between Jumper and Jeffrey seemed like a mere space filler that served very little purpose. In light of the fact that this was kept in the book, I’d have liked the arc regarding this event and the reactions and feelings of the protagonists, to have been a little more developed in a way that could have led the story on and told the reader more about them.
As with most Self-published books, there were a handful of typos, but not so many as to detract from the enjoyment of the read. I feel that the writer did attempt to polish up the grammar and spelling to the best of her abilities.
All in all, I found this to be a pleasant love story. I do not regret purchasing it. It held my interest and kept me reading until the end.
